This is a really great book to read if you haven’t read a book with a trans-gendered woman in it. Venetia is a post op trans female, which means she is… all woman.
I loved the way the bullying side of things worked out. It shows just how hard bullying is on the bullied… but sometimes on the bully once they grow up and realize what a horrible thing they had done. The amount of damage that is done by bullying is so much more than so many people realize. Thankfully, Victor/Venetia used it to become a stronger, more confident woman instead of going the other route. In fact, she used it to set up a group to help LBGTQ youth who need/want support.
There is so many great things about this book that I think so many people need to know about. Not just the transgender things either, although I will say having read numerous books about the topic, it was well researched and correct in how Venetia ended up after her surgery.
Although I will say that I did wish there was a bit more about all the steps and process it took her to become the woman she was, and not just the surgery as that is the final step she had to go through.
All in all, I would say it was a great read.

Nona Raines became hooked on romances when she first picked up “The Flame and the Flower” by Kathleen Woodiwiss (and she’s not telling how long ago that was). Romances may have changed since then, but her love for a good love story has not. She’s been writing off and on for years, but it was only when she joined the Central New York Romance Writers Association that she finally gained the support and confidence she needed to complete a manuscript.

Nona lives in upstate New York with her many pets and is currently working on her next novel. A former librarian, she enjoys reading books of all genres and discussing them with others. She is thrilled to finally be able to call herself an author.
